It's national flag day on the 14th June.

The origins of Flag Day take us back far beyond the web. The United States' flag was officially adopted on June 14, 1777, hence why we celebrate every June 14th.

The internet, of course, has given Flag Day a newfound platform, turning what was a modest commemoration into a trending topic.
